SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Zoo is giving you an inside look at what’s going on behind the gate and letting you explore the grounds from the comforts of your couch.

The zoo is temporarily closed to the public until further notice amid the coronavirus pandemic but zoo officials are making sure you can still get up close and personal with some of your favorite animals.

There are videos of hundreds of baby seahorses, a tortoise that’s estimated to be more than 100 years old and you can even eat lunch with a bald eagle.
